How to Grow Orchids In Flower Pot

Orchids are plants that need little maintenance complicated but not hard to do. In general, how to grow orchids consists of two main phases, namely the process of planting and fertilizing. Here is the second stage:

1. Cultivation

Orchid plants are usually grown in pots which is a growth medium. The growth medium, there are a variety of materials such as materials that have been designed specifically for orchids. Of them, namely: charcoal or fuel wood, coconut shell, broken bricks or tiles, and coconut fiber.

2. Maintenance

In the maintenance phase of how to grow orchids consists of fertilizing, watering, and pest and disease control.

    a. Fertilization

    The process of fertilizing orchids can be performed using chemical fertilizers or manure. Fertilization with chemical fertilizers is done by way of comparison or mid-size seedlings with different comparisons. For comparison seedlings K, P, K, is 60:30:10. Here, more nitrogen is given in order to form more protein compounds are useful for the growth and development of the orchid. While the mid-size ratio K, P, K, is 30:30:30. Use manure for fertilizing can be done with the dirt goats, horses, buffaloes, and cows. In addition to containing a variety of elements needed by plants, manure also helps once for water storage, especially in the dry season.
    Significantly chemical fertilizer does little to accelerate the growth of orchids. This is because the chemical fertilizers have substituted various elements needed. Elements needed for the growth of orchids include:

        Nitrogen: Nitrogen is needed for the purposes of synthesis of proteins, nucleic acids, amino acids, enzymes and as a constituent leaf chlorophyll (chlorophyll).
        Phosphorus: Phosphorus is useful for plant root growth and maturation.
        Potassium and Potassium: In plant tissues, potassium and potassium reaction function facilitate photosynthesis, respiration, and trans location of carbohydrates.
        Calcium: Calcium is needed as filler material for plant cell walls. In addition, calcium is also used to increase the specific plant hormone that acts to detoxify many toxins that enter.
Magnesium: Magnesium is needed to help the plant as an activator of the enzyme or enzymes, are also involved in the metabolism of protein synthesis.
        Sulfur: Sulfur is a constituent part of the component amino acids, vitamins, and acts as a enzyme.

    b. Sprinkling

    Watering is one of the important factors in section how to grow orchids. Availability of sufficient water to support the growth of the plant as well. This is because the water works, among others, as a source of H and O, filler cells, regulating cell pressure, the carrier of various compounds into the plant, the plant temperature control, and as a solvent for the compounds.
